Quoted from benheck:
What fiend would tilt a photo of Scarlett Johanson, the only actress under 30 who actually eats sandwiches?
Quoted from Plungemaster:
Which moran is tilting those lovely ladies all over the forum????
This is a Dutch forum, ladies allowed!
Stop getting all mad and worked up about tilting.
Tilting is not a bad thing, is not indicative of someone disagreeing with your post, is not somehow a slam against what you posted, doesn't indicate the person is a boob-hater, etc. It is simply a safety measure to let people who choose to want to not see your boob pics, half naked chicks, and questionable material NOT SEE IT. This could be because they do not like seeing questionable material, because they have young children at home, or because they look at Pinside at work and do not want to get fired because someone posted boobs all over the place. (The latter category includes myself actually. I personally have no problem with the pic contents, but I access it at work to moderate on a regular basis and refuse to lose my job because you all can't tilt pics.)
Robin has gone so far as to make tilting your own questionable posts MANDATORY, and at one point it was talked about to temp freeze accounts of people who purposely did not. That policy is not currently in place at this time, but that may change depending on circumstances. A big update is coming soon that will change a few things.
Everyone has control over their tilt threshold, and if you want to see EVERYTHING then you can. Just change your tilt settings. We're not trying to censor or edit people, we're just trying to keep it safe for people to even look at Pinside in public places.
Pasted straight from the Pinside FAQ sticky thread:
What are TILT warnings?
Sometimes a post may contain images or text not suited for all, while still falling within the Pinside rules. Let's call it "grey" content. Please tilt this using the tilt warning icon above your post. As others will do the same, this forms a user-moderated "shield" so we can all safely browse the site in public spaces, at work, or when our kids are around. TILTing your own image uploads (when needed) is mandatory. Failure to do so may earn you a Pinside rules violation warning, so please be responsible.
So TILTing is a form of censorship?
Gosh no! It's up to you how you set your TILT warning threshold. You can even disable it to see all content. TILT warnings are merely a way to protect sensitive eyes from forum content which some may regard as "dangerous" or "unsuitable".
